    Better question is how do you shoot a firearm holding a toddler? It is a bad situation period, but I want a way to have the gun on me throughout the day and the urban carry offers a method for that even while carrying a kid around. Not sure if it is a good method, but at least the gun stays hidden...

    Thanks for that video, it was very well done, and she brings up all of the difficulty and some good ideas.

    Having shot most of those choices I will vote for the P365 you didn't list. Basically G43 Size. Holds 11 Rounds (13 with optional mag) and is incredibly soft shooting for such a small pistol. It makes a LC9S/EC9S feel like it's a .40.

    Seems to run $499.99 almost everywhere with 2 - 10 round mags (Sportsmans Outdoor Supercenter has them a little cheaper and throws in a free 12 round mag) and includes night sights.

    P365 - Just make sure you get new production. Early ones had some teething problems. Other than some issues with a binding follower on one of three mags the first time it was loaded mine has been 100% but admittedly I've only got 200 rounds through it.

    I’m sure you can find an old Smith and Wesson Bodyguard for under $500. A model 49, 38, 638, 649, Aluminum frame , steel frame, .38spl or .357 magnum. They are Da/Sa and are all of the same beast family.

    Every body should own a LCR. Get it now. I want a LCRX as well. Also love the Smith for carry. And while you are at it, get the LCR22. Not only for training, but for shear fun.

    I really didn't realize how many more guns I needed until I started this search!

    Hold the toddler in one arm, shoot with the other.

    Potentially the greatest carry revolver ever produced.

    I choose reliability over anything for EDC. Even though I don't own a Glock that's the proven manufacturer of the bunch, or as they say in China, 100,000,000 people can't be Wong.

    Little update: the Taurus G2S is a pretty sweet little pistol, shot a few mags in the gravel pit, hornady critical defense and basig American eagle ball ammo. No feed issues even limp wristing a few shots. Hit a few inches low at 25 yards, but amazingly consistent, easy to adjust point of aim to hit where I wanted. A bit of recoil as expected, but no where near too much. Overall very pleasant to shoot, can't wait to train more with this gun.

    Been carrying it in a Remora holster at about 4 o clock iwb, and it is about 50 times more comfortable than my CZ p-01. I still need a holster that attaches to a belt, but for now this works and hides away very well...
